Aquariums, especially the big and deep ones, can really be a challenge to clean. The hard-to-reach corners and other nooks and crannies take up much effort and time. However, leaving them unclean will lead to bigger problems for your fish and corals. Dirty spots encourage the growth of parasitic algae that latch on to healthy aquatic creatures and leave them ill.
Don't worry, though! Cleaning fish and reef tanks shouldn't be such a hassle. The Magnavore Algae Cleaner Replacement Acrylicare Pads from Pet Store will do the work for you. Just snap them on a Magnavore cleaner and you're all set to clean up your tanks. These soft pads are best used for acrylic tanks, which scratch really easily. But with these pads, acrylic tanks will not get scratches at all.
Each pack of the Magnavore Algae Cleaner Replacement Acrylicare Pads contains a dozen pads. That's more than enough supply for several cleanings. If you run out of these pads, do not attempt to clean your acrylic fish and reef tanks with a cloth because you might scratch them. It's best to buy a pack of these pads and have an extra pack for standby. They're the only products that can effectively clean up acrylic tanks without damaging them.

The magnets are very strong as advertised. Unfortunately, the pads that are supposed to stick to the inside magnet with velcro do not do so. You need to hold the pad on while placing the other magnet on the outside of the tank. Otherwise, it works well. It would be nice to see some replacement pads go out with the correct velcro.

Easy to apply and mount, but i recommend this product in conjunction with Algae Cleaner tune-up kit. Replace both internal and external pads together- It's a sure way to insure minimal damage to my acrylic.

I use my Magnavore Algae Cleaner 2ER in a 36 gal hexagon acrylic saltwater tank. The 2ER is the smallest cleaner of the line and a little bit too big for a tank of this size - corals will have to be moved away from the front panes. However, with the acrylic pad extending beyond the rims of the in-tank unit, it cleans the difficult front corners of the tank better than anything I had before. I also like the acrylic replacement pads, as they put an end to the waste of having to throw out the magnets when the original pad is used up.
